The case study “Eat at My Restaurant”

Junior (College 3rd year) ・Business ・APA ・3 Sources

The case study "Eat at My Restaurant" compares the income of three large restaurants' financial reports for the years 2009 and 2010. Panera Bread, Starbucks, and Yum Brands, Inc. are the three businesses. Starbucks has locations throughout more than 50 nations and is the industry leader in specialty coffee retail. On the other side, Yum Brands is the owner of a number of divisions, including "A&W"-USA, "KFC"-USA, "LJS"-US, Pizza Hut, Yum Restaurants China, and "YRI"-International Division (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2016). The financial information for the three organizations mentioned will be analyzed in this study using their income analyses from 2010 and 2009. Net income is a calculation of the amount of money that remains following the deductions of all the operational costs, interests, preferred stock dividends and, taxes. In general, this is a deduction of total expenses of the company from the total revenue(Pratt, 2016). On the other hand, “net cash provided by operating activities” is a part of the “cash flow statement” which offers data about the “cash-general abilities” of the specific company’s central abilities. In the 10-10 case study, the “net cash provided by operating activities” provides a clear sign of the long-term profitability of the companies(Pratt, 2016). This decision is based on the fact cash flow from operating activities is essential to the investors to understand whether the company is getting adequate cash circulations.

In "operating cash flow" from 2009 to 2010; Yum Brands dropped from 22.8 to 2.92, Panera Bread and Starbucks did not have current long-term arrears and recent notes owed. In the operational cash flow or total debt from 2009 to 2010; Yum Brands rose by 7.3%, Panera Bread decreased by 17.27%, and Starbucks increased by 7.94%. In the establishment of “operating cash flow per share” from 2009 to 2010; Yum Brands increased by $1.14, Panera Bread rose by $0.94, and Starbucks increased by $0.37(Marshall, 2016). In the distribution of cash dividends from 2009 to 2010; Yum Brands showed a growth of 0.9, Panera Bread had no dividends, and Starbucks recorded new dividends in 2010(Marshall, 2016).

Based on the Case study 10-10, the three listed companies seem to show positive growth in their incomes from the year 2009 to the year 2010. However, the question that arises based on these financial reports provided in the case study, there is a need to speculate which of the three companies tends to develop a cash flow crisis. Panera Bread stands out based on the absence of dividends to provide to its investors both in 2009 and 2010(Marshall, 2016; Pratt, 2016). This distinct lack of dividends is an indicator there is a constant absence of cash flow in the two years which include 2009 and 2010 and lack of positive income in cash flow in the company and worrying to the investors.


This essay has provided an in-depth analysis of the case study 10-10, using the fiscal reports of the three major food outlets; Yum Brands, Starbucks and Panera Bread. The paper has offered a brief introduction to the company and its subsidies as in the case of Yum Brands and provided a clear definition of the difference in net income and net cash based on the company’s operational activities. Also, the paper has offered financial analysis of the companies using the data provided and provided a speculation or conducted a probability of which organization portrays signs of cash flow difficulties based on their remitted data of 2009 and 2010.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
